Gutsy Walk 2019

Sunday, June 2nd, 2019

Gutsy Walk is Canada’s largest community fundraiser for Crohn’s and colitis. Every walk is fun-filled, family-friendly, and non-competitive. Participants can walk any distance they’re comfortable with. In Saskatoon; we walk approximately 5 km at Meewasin Park. We’ve got live entertainment on stage by some great local bands, and a fantastic BBQ in addition to the camaraderie of about 500 fellow Gutsy Walkers along the walk route.

If you can’t make it to the Gutsy Walk, you can still support the cause by making a donation to the event, a team,or an individual walker. With your support, cures are only steps away. We hope to see you on June 2, 2019 at Meewasin Park! Time and details are at www.gutsywalk.ca.
